Shakespeare's Birthplace made from Shredded Wheat

AS STRANGE sites go, a replica of Shakespeare's birthplace made completely out of wheat sitting proudly on Denton Island, has to be one of the strangest.

Cereal company Shredded Wheat has donated the life-size sculpture to the town after it was used as part of a Best of British Landmark exhibition.

Newhaven in Bloom applied to the company for one of ten sculptures after they were no longer needed and hope it will act as a tourist attraction for the town.

The house now stands proudly by the river on Denton Island and can be seen from the Swing Bridge and from the main road around the town, as well as by people going to South Downs College.

Newhaven In Bloom Chairman Robert Robertson said, 'We are absolutely thrilled to have been given this unique wheat sculpture.'

As soon as we started to put it up it aroused interest from the passers-by.'

I know it is going to be an added attraction to the town and we would like to thank Shredded Wheat for their kind donation.'
